What is the Colorado Carbon Fund?
The Colorado Carbon Fund began in 2007 as a “key component in the State of Colorado’s Climate Action Plan.” A collaborative project between the Governor’s Energy Office (now the Colorado Energy Office) and the Climate Trust, a non-profit based in Portland, Oregon, it aimed to advance four main objectives:
1) Develop a funding source for clean energy and climate mitigation projects;
2) Provide direct investment towards Colorado-based projects;
3) Support the State’s Climate Action Plan in mitigating the effects of climate change;
4) Provide high-quality offsets for individuals, businesses, and government agencies seeking to mitigate their carbon footprints.
